Thanks for the reminder Marcia! You are the best Mom!
So important...thank you, Marcia!
I smoked mine :lookaroun
Uh really? Not the type of post to put this in.
When I was in Elementary school a girl in my class and her sister died in a fire due to a improper smoke detector.
It is one thing to try and throw humor into a post but this is not the one to do it.
I am bumping this very old thread as a reminder!
Those dear little girls would be grown women now, I miss my friend, and I still tear up thinking about going to that funeral with three coffins, and a husband/father overcome with grief because he lost everything he loved in life.
Thanks for bumping this Marcia - so important! :kiss:
Wow, so sorry, that is awful and so tragic. Thank you for this critical reminder. I will definitely be doing this today. Or I will be having the DH take care of this today.
Thank you, Marcia.
Your yearly reminder is a tribute to your friends and a service to all of us.
The first time change after we moved into the new house we bought a bunch of D-cells to put in all the smoke alarms only to discover they were hardwired into the house electrical system. :lol:
Just a suggestion - get at least one battery alarm in a central location. My neighbors had their alarms hardwired to the electric and when their house was struck by lightening the electric in the house was knocked out and their fire alarms didn't work. The dad heard glass break downstairs and thought someone was breaking in - but when he went to check it out he was greeted by smoke halfway down the stairs. The fire had broken the glass. They thankfully were able to escape out the second floor windows onto an awning and climb down from there.
We recently found one of alarms had a drained battery - we never heard it beeping and realized it must have beeped when we were away for a week on vacation (at Disney). I will ALWAYS change them with the clocks now. Thanks Mom for the bump!
Bumping again to keep current on "new posts" list.
3/2017 BUMP - clocks change tonight/tomorrow.
I can't believe so much time has gone by - the girls would be grown women, perhaps with their own families. Please, please, please take the time and spend a few dollars to change your batteries if you haven't done so within in the past year. Surely your, and your family's, life is worth doing such a small task with such a huge impact?
